The volleyball court was also opened with a friendly match between St. Joseph Catholic Church Iwere-Ile Youth and St. James' Catholic Church Iwere-Oke Youth. At the end of the competition, for the female team, St. James' Catholic Church Iwere-Oke won and for the male team, St. Joseph Catholic Church Iwere-Ile won. There were about 300 youth present including the Parents, Catholics and non-Catholics. Rev. Fr. Peter Akinola, the parish priest of St. Joseph Catholic Church Iwere-Ile parish was also present, He was also the umpire, Great kudos to him.


The volleyball court is situated at the center of the town, well decorated and painted.


We cannot but mention and appreciate the tireless and ceaseless effort of our indefatigable Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. John Opoola and his Associate, Rev. Fr. Joachim Alade for their fatherly support and attention towards the construction of the volleyball court.


We also appreciate the effort of the Diocese, the parents and the parishioners for their huge support towards the construction of the volleyball court. We cannot but itemized those that really supported us hailing from Most Rev. Emmanuel Adetoyese Badejo, the Bishop Catholic Diocese of Oyo, Rev. Fr. John Folasayo Opoola, the Parish Priest, Rev. Fr. Joachim Alade, the Associate Priest and the family of Mr. John Olatunji. We pray God will reward you abundantly.
